This is the story of a sleepy book... What will you and your children need to do to help it go to sleep?
After a 1st reading, we can encourage the children to join in the story with actions; after a second reading, they could join in with asking the questions: "est-ce que tu...?"
The children could recreate the story in pairs with one child being the book, the other the mouse they swap roles.

This is not just a book: it is a toy and a pacifier, it shows you and tells you what to do!
This book is simple enough for all children to understand but the language is developed enough for it to be a challenge when you look at it more closely and use it (see grammar topics).

This story may remind older children what they used to do at bedtime; it could lead to a discussion about what they should maybe do now at bed time, eg not go on their phones if they have them!
The children could then come up with their own version in French of their ideal bedtime routine: est-ce que tu as fait tes devoirs? Est-ce que tu as éteint ton téléphone? They could do their real one too! Est-ce que tu as regardé la télé / vérifié Facebook? You may be pleasantly surprised!
